Netware client setup on Win XP Pro

Hello there, I've been refered to this newsgroup from another Novell one.

I'm trying to configure Novell Client 4.83 on a Wnidows XP machine
connecting to Novell 4.11

Basically I am trying to avoid having to setup every user as a local
account, and simply have the client login, skipping the login to local
account bit.

I have ben referred to

>1) Configure the PC to use "AutoAdminLogon" -
>(Each User uses the same local account)

and this seems to be the correct solution, I am trying the "Auto login to NT
and manual Login to NDS".

This works fine once, but then the 'key' registry setting for what I want to
do is

HKLM\SOFTWARE|Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\AutoAdminLogon =

reverts to it's default setting 0 after a reboot. Any idea why that might
be? How can I solve this?

Many thanks

This is now sorted. For future reference, the solution offered in the Novell
TID will only work if the local administrator account is setup with a
non-blank password.

Windows XP Netware Client and Netware 4.11 server
I am having some odd problems with this combination. Most of our client machines are W98 and the login script seems to work just fine. The new Windows XP Pro computer I am trying to add to the network doesn't seem to behave the same as my W2K Pro computers using the same Novell Client. Login times and NetWare rescource access times were very long so I removed the IP support from the Novell Client, specified the 802.3 frame used by the 4.11 server and specified its actual network number in the NWLink protocol settings. That helped one login user: everything worked nicely, l...

NetWare Client on Win 2k & XP

Remote Access with Win XP and Netware Client 4.9?
I have a few XP laptops I'm trying to get working for home and the office. The laptops are running Novell Netware Client 4.9, and I got them working in the office, no problem. They had to be configured for IP and IPX, and it was a cinch to get going. We use a Netware Server for Groupwise, and other hosted shared applications. I figured the same login and password would work remotely, but it doesn't. Is there anything I have to do special to get this working?
